WATCH: Reporter Gets Heckled for Wearing a Mask While Covering a Story

Minnesota reporter Lou Raguse was sent to Albany, Minnesota, a town of roughly 2,500 people, to cover a protest/rally outside of Shady's Tavern. The bar's owner was going to open his doors in defiance of Gov. Tim Walz's (D) stay-at-home order. When Raguse and his cameraman showed up donning masks, the crowd began to chant "take it off!"

Because the video went viral, Raguse decided to provide more context into what took place on the ground.

Raguse also explained why he decided to keep the mask on.

His bigger issue with the people wasn't about masks but the "general anti-press sentiment."

This is a difficult time for all of us. We're still figuring out how to maneuver this pandemic. Each and every one of us. Some feel very strongly about wearing masks, others are indifferent and some see no point in wearing them. There are employers that require their employees to wear masks at all times as a precautionary measure. Stores, like Costco, are requiring employees and customers to wear masks.

If you see someone who decides to wear a mask in public, don't shame them. You don't know if they're required to wear it, have a medical condition or have someone vulnerable close to them. 

Yes, members of the media can be lying and deceitful, but no one deserves to be heckled the way Lou Raguse was.
